List of most downloaded Android applications

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of most downloaded Android applications that includes most of the free apps that have been downloaded more than 100 million times and most of the paid apps that have been downloaded over one million times on unique Android devices; these are listed in the tables below. Since there are numerous Android apps that have been downloaded over one million times from the Google Play app store and it was reported in February 2017 that over 169 apps have been downloaded at least 100 million times and over 2,392 apps have been downloaded at least ten million times, therefore the barrier for entry on this list is set at 100 million for free apps.[1] Many of the applications in this list are distributed pre-installed on top-selling Android devices[2] and may be considered bloatware by some people because users did not actively choose to download them.[3]

Free applications with one billion or more downloads[edit]

These are the Google Play apps with over one billion downloads on unique devices. As of June 1, 2017, there are 22 applications in this top category; all are owned by Google, Facebook or Samsung.
